Kodak EasyShare Z981 Digital Camera, A Risky Buy

jen51486, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: This camera actually has a great zoom for distant shots, BUT I bought one and the flash bulb blew out the FIRST NIGHT I bought it!  I exchanged it for another the next day and about 5 months after I got the second camera, the LCD screen cracked randomly with no interference to it.  It never hit anything, nothing was dropped on it, IT just broke.

Kodak Easy share is not my favorite camera.

  • Excerpt: This was my first digital camera.  It seems like I have had nothing but trouble with this camera.  It is very easy to use and portable.  I had problems with it from the beginning and could never get Kodak to fix the problem.  Basically they told me that to fix the problem would cost me the same amount as buying a new camera.  So I have just been working past the issues since then until we are ready to purchase another one.

Not worth the money.

  • Excerpt: We purchased this camera about 6 months ago.  We paid about $200.00 for it.  This is probably the worst camera we have ever owned. The zoom on this camera is awesome.  However, getting a good, clear picture with this camera is sometimes impossible.  Manycome out blurry, reddish or just slightly out of focus.  We took it with us on vacation and only about 3/4 of the pics are decent.  My husband is able to take better pics with it than I am.

Don't by Kodak

  • Summary: I bought this my Kodak Z981 on sale in Feb. 2011. I needed a replacement for my old Lumix and since my wife had previously owned a Kodak digital camera which took great photos, I decided to try this camera. I was impressed with the specs but was particularly interested in the fact that it was capable of taking HD video. In fact, all the promos for this camera exalted this capability.

  • Summary: I bought this camera on sale $100.00 off regular price and boy am I glad I didn't pay the full price! I thought that Kodak would produce a better product than what this camera is. I have a 2 year old Fuji Finepix S2000HD that I love, which at the time of purchase was less than Z981 regular price. I had an event that I needed more zoom and the fact that the Z981 has 26X wide angle and portrait mode along with sale price convinced me that Z981 was what I needed.

"Awful photo quality trumps any feature set"

xorandnotor, CNET
14 February 2011
  • Pros: The feature set is impressive, though none of them can be realized to their full potential without decent photos.
  • Cons: The photo quality (mostly color and JPG artifacting) is horrid; not suitable even for wallet-sized prints.

It's OK

  • Summary: I called the seller since the return policy was 7 days on the day after I received the camera. The shutter speed is very slow, the camera is very noisy and my older Kodak blows this away in picture quality. I am not happy with the camera at all. I was looking forward to this purchase. The multi shots do not stop the motion clear. My other Kodak (Z series about 3 years old) could snap a shot mid motion and it was clear!!
